Atty's been seizure free for one year on the MAS diet!!!

I declare this day to be "National Blog About Atty And The MAS Diet" day! Spread the word!! I challenge you {all three of my followers} to blog about the MAS diet and challenge your readers to do the same. Share Atty's story with others! If you don't blog, share on facebook, or tell a friend {or stranger} and then leave me a comment letting me know. {Just for my own selfish wants, as it would mean the world to me.} Link back to this blog if you want to so that everyone can see for themselves what an awesome miracle this is! Lets get everyone talking!!!

P.S. I realize I am blogging this late in the day {I'm a busy mom of four and I run a daycare, so give me a break} feel free to spread the word tomorrow or the next day or the day after that... I'm not big on rules. ;)

Atticus I love you to the moon and back, quack, quack. Me and you son, we make a great team {along with your brothers and sister and daddy of course}.

{Cream of Almond} Breakfast Cereal

Atty just ate two whole batches of this warm cereal this morning. He LOVES it! So excited to make a new recipe that he likes so that he can have something new to eat in the morning.

  • 1/2 cup almond meal/flour

  • 2 tablespoons flax meal (count the carbs)

  • 1/2 tsp sugar free vanilla extract

  • 15 drops stevia

  • 2 cups water

  • Add cinnamon to taste if desired

Combine all ingredients in pan and stir (I put 1 1/2 cups water in at first and then the other 1/2 after it has been simmering and thickened up a bit), cook over medium high heat until bubbling hard then turn down to a medium heat and simmer for 3-5 minutes. Don't let it get too thick, it will thicken as it cools! To me it seems to have the consistency and look of Cream of Wheat. I haven't really been counting the carbs in flax meal for Atty for quite a while now, it just doesn't seem to matter for him. But every child is different. Because I don't count the carbs in the cereal I usually top this with 1/3 of a sliced banana. He really likes that. I tasted it myself of course and it really is pretty yummy!
